Murano Sommerso Bud Vase

R360.00

It may be on the small side, but this Murano sommerso bud vase is a spectacular piece of glass blowing! Just looks at those clean lines of layered glass, and that wonderful twist as the vase opens up – incredible!

I’ve always had a deep appreciation for hand blown glass, but since watching the reality TV series Blown Away I’m even more amazed at the what it takes to produce something like today’s vase – its an incredible eye for design, and years and years of practice,  and even then it can all go wrong at the last minute! Watch just one episode of the series, and I promise you you’ll look at today’s amazing piece of art glass in a completely new light!

 P.S. The style of today’s vase is normally attributed to Seguso Vetri d’Arte/Flavio Poli, but there are other well known manufacturers, such as Mandruzzato, Formia, Oball and Luigi Onesto, who have produced glassware in the ‘Flavio Poli’ Sommerso style. Unfortunately without a maker’s mark, it’s difficult to attribute the vase to a particular glass maker….

Dimensions: 15cm tall x 7.5cm wide x 4.5cm deep
